  • Any suggestions on how I can get the Hebrew to go in its correct direction? I get Hebrew letters but in the wrong order. – DanF Jun 20 '17 at 15:12
  • Any English version of either of these anywhere so I can understand this answer? – Gary Jun 21 '17 at 1:06

  • @AvrohomYitzchok - Thank you! It's SO tempting to hit the "this answer is not useful" button for every single answer on this forum that doesn't have an English translation, especially when it seems that the answer perfectly covers the question...I'm trying to learn as much as possible here, and non-English answers impede progess. – Gary Jun 22 '17 at 0:00
